Community roads and pavements schemes announced

The 26 most popular roads and pavements schemes nominated for repairs will receive £490k this year under the Council’s ever-popular Community Roads and Pavement fund have been announced.

For the fourth successive year Richmond Council will invest hundreds of thousands of pounds on top of the millions it already spends on repairing roads and pavements across the borough. The latest Community Roads and Pavements nomination exercise ended on February 22 this year and approximately 1,300 residents took part.

Each of the borough’s 14 villages will now receive approximately £35k for roads and pavements repairs.

Richmond Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Streetscene, Cllr Stephen Speak, announced the successful schemes today (May 29). 

Last year, thanks to the Community Roads and Pavements Fund, 19 roads and 31 pavements were repaired. This is in addition to the 16 roads and 30 pavements r that were repaired as part of the Council’s regular £3milllion maintenance programme.  

Cllr Stephen Speak, said: 

“Since nominations closed the Council’s Highways officers have worked hard to inspect the most frequently mentioned roads across the borough and produce cost estimates. I’m very pleased that the Council will now be starting work improving the locations that residents have identified in each village.”
